Dan’s sev­enth fifty on his own loop rig

Angling Times (UK) - - CARP NEWS -

IN-FORM Dan Tay­lor has been at it again with an­other 50-pounder.

His sev­enth UK fish over the mag­i­cal mark came just an hour into an overnight ses­sion at a Kent syn­di­cate venue.

“I got my baits out at around 7pm and no more than an hour later the rod on the pre­baited area was away,” he said. “Af­ter a heavy scrap go­ing from weedbed to weedbed, I landed my sev­enth UK carp over 50lb at 51lb 4oz.

“I was blown away, and it made the early pack-up for work the next day so much eas­ier!”

The Ash­ford rod, who banked a 47lb com­mon from the same water a fort­night ago, was us­ing a pre­sen­ta­tion he calls the loop rig. This fea­tures a size Nash Fang X hook and a 4oz flat pear lead on a clip.

The suc­cess­ful hook­bait was a meshed 18mm Nash­bait Key Cray boilie placed over 10 freebies in a 5ft silt de­pres­sion sur­rounded by 2ft bars.
